July 1, 2020 - Memorandum on Changes About Housing, Meal Plans, and Employment
Due to a variety of factors, a number of students, single and married, are continuing to live on the BYU–Hawaii campus this summer. This memo addresses food, housing, and work matters for July and August until the beginning of the Fall 2020 Semester.
If you are staying in BYU–Hawaii housing for the summer, you have probably already made arrangements with the Residential Life office. Your student account for the two-month summer term will be billed in one lump sum July 1.
Paying Your Housing Bill
You can pay your housing bill as quickly as you like, but we strongly suggest that you contact the Financial Services department by email ( email@example.com ) before July 7 and authorize a deduction from your paychecks equal to 25% of the rent posted to your account on July 1. By doing this, your rental charge will be completely paid by the end of summer. Unpaid bills may prevent you from participating in fall semester classes.
Food Services will continue to provide meal services according to their posted schedule for this summer.
Regular meal plans will be available for purchase, which represent a good value for cost and convenience.
Students (including students on IWORK) will not be required to purchase meal plans but can pay for separate meals at the Food Service venues.
Refer to the table below for summer meal plan options available to you if you decide to purchase one. Please scroll to the right for more meal plan options.

Paying for Food Purchased on Campus
If you purchase a meal plan, the charge will be placed on your student account.
You can pay your meal plan bill as quickly as you like, but we strongly suggest that you contact the Financial Services department by email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) before July 7 and authorize a deduction from your paychecks equal to 25% of the meal plan cost posted to your account. By doing this, your meal plan charges will be completely paid by the end of summer.
Note: If you do not wish to purchase a meal plan, but have no money with which to buy food until your first paycheck for summer is earned, Food Services will let you charge your meals until July 15. After July 15, you must be on a meal plan OR PAY CASH to purchase meals at Food Services.
If you charge meals at Food Services between now and July 15, the charges will be added to your student account and you will pay for them as described above.
There are adequate work opportunities allowing you to work three weeks at forty hours per week and one week at nineteen hours in a monthly period.
Taking advantage of the available work opportunities will enable you to feel confident and secure that your needs can be taken care of. Remember that you are expected to pay your obligations.
In addition to student employment opportunities through BYU–Hawaii Human Resources, this summer, David Fonoimoana is coordinating student work projects to allow students to pick up extra hours. You may reach him at David.Fonoimoana@byuh.edu or you can apply directly through the student job board .
